full rundown on the Leatherwood/Hi-Lux Optics 8X Wm. Malcolm USMC Sniper Riflescope on GunDigest.com from renowned firearms expert Ken Ramage. Here's an excerpt:
Once dialed in to hit POA, the sniper scope proved a reliable performer over the course of a half-dozen trips to the range and a variety of W&E adjustment tracking exercises. When the W&E knobs were turned, the POI relocated as it should through various up-down/left-right and box-pattern tests.
Typically, there were other club members at the range with me. Most commented on the Leatherwood sniper scope and all were invited to look it over and shoot a few rounds. Without exception, they were impressed by the sniper scope’s brightness and their ability to accurately place shots at 100 yards. For a few, it was clearly a new experience; a first-time look at a ‘vintage’ pre-AR shooting platform and non-tactical optics.
